Ultra Keyboard

Ultra Keyboard


Ultra Keyboard has many features designed to give you a better Android keyboard experience.

Choose your favorite way to type.
Touch-type like usual, or combine adjacent keys into COMPACT KEYS so they're easier to press. Slide your finger over words using WORD TRACING (instead of touching each individual letter).

The SUGGESTION BAR is smart and easy to use.
Choose words with just one swipe, even if they're not visible at first. A built-in English LANGUAGE DICTIONARY is included (and many other languages are available for download). Add new words to your personal CUSTOM DICTIONARY. BLACK LIST words you don't want to show up anymore.

Use WORD REPLACEMENTS to automatically expand abbreviations.
Tired of always typing "be right there"? Try "brt". You can even create your own.

The TOOL BAR provides a ton of functionality in a small amount of space.
You can scroll, drag, or flick through the available buttons.

Use SPEECH-TO-TEXT to transform your spoken words into text.

TRANSLATE your text to dozens of different languages.

CUT, COPY, and PASTE with a built-in CLIPBOARD.
Text you copy is saved so you can access it later. Remove anything you don't want to keep.

FULL-SCREEN MODE provides TEXT SELECTION HANDLES and a MAGNIFIER.
Accurately select portions of text to edit or copy.

The CHARACTER MAP makes more Unicode characters accessible.
Set up your own list of favorites for easy access. Includes Emoji on Android 4.1 devices.

Use the CAMERA OVERLAY* to see where you're going.
Watch what's in front of you while you type on the go. (* Android 2.3 or newer only.)

Create custom ACTIONS triggered by GESTURES or device buttons.
Want to swipe left to delete the previous word? Want your device's search button to activate the camera overlay? Do all this and more.

A DYNAMIC UI means you can customize the keyboard so it's perfect for you.
Are the keys too tall for your liking? Make them shorter. Don't like the ARROW KEYS? Hide them. Many things can be tweaked directly from the tool bar.

Change the keyboard's look with downloadable THEMES.
You can use the built-in THEME EDITOR to create your own themes, or customize existing themes with your chosen fonts and colors. You can even use themes designed for other keyboards!

User reviews of Ultra Keyboard
Was a great app, but it seems like everytime they updated it it gets worse. everything they said they fixed actually they made worse. I don't understand it was working fine for me before so why update anything

This is the best keyboard replacement and I have used it for several months now. However, a couple of days ago after installing an upgrade, the dictionary for my mother language (Dutch) did not work anymore. This is really a shame, I was not warned that this would happen and now it is pretty worthless for me.

I do like this app, but am experiencing a lot of force close issues on Cyanogenmod 7. I'm using nightly builds, so maybe the issue is with CM rather than Ultra Keyboard; I'll wait and see. Up until I installed the latest CM7 build, Ultra Keyboard has been really good, but I agree with TheMightyRechec's point that the dictionary is too big. A very slight mistype can generate a relatively obscure word rather than the one you intended.

This is the best keyboard for my purposes, and I've tried all the major keyboard apps out there.

Great but missing 1 thing This has almost all the bell and whistles but it doesn't have predictive suggestions. Add this and it will 5+ stars.

TIME FOR AN UPDATE! IT'S BEEN A YEAR... So... are you still alive developer? You think maybe you could wake up and possibly update this app sometime soon? It's been a year. Hint: Start by looking at some of the feedback we've all left. Thanks

Don't love it anymore! This used to be the best keyboard in existence - hands down- NO comparison! And if it worked properly, it still would be! Suggestion bar floats on top of my writing area. :-( No longer easy to blacklist words. NEEDS NEW EMOJI CAPABILITIES like everyone else. List goes on... Good keyboard, but it used it used to be incredible!
